Finding yourself tongue-tied? Try Wordthief ($24.95), the latest card game from Faby Games, and all will be made verbally clear. Touted as a game for all ages, from 9 to 99, the game consists of 104 letter cards and four jokers, with each player being dealt seven cards and a center card turned over for trump. From that point, it’s all about linguistics, as each player takes a turn placing cards in front of him to score points by forming words. Call it the card shark’s Scrabble.
